sometimes the sky is dark
because all the stars are in their eyes—
they shine, undefeated, determined
with promises yet unspoken
and a silent battle song
ready to fight on
and sometimes the dawn fails to come
until the darkness has burned away
with sparks igniting the shadows.
sometimes the sun won't rise
until it's ready to face the night
and let its healing rays cut through
the black ocean of the heavens—
and sometimes all the light needs
is you to lift a torch of hope.
